The tourists were out and about on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh today. Well, I guess they were tourists. They were taking pictures of themselves and campus landmarks with their cameras and their phones.
It’s a beautiful day in Pittsburgh for sight-seeing, sunny with a high around 75. Seeing all the tourists made me nostalgic for my old alma mater. Nine years ago I was a graduate student in the writing program, teaching flash fiction to undergraduate students in the Cathedral of Learning.
Hail to Pitt!
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction who live all over the world!
The Old Soldier is actually looking forward to listening to the Pirates baseball game on the radio later today. The Pirates play the Washington Nationals again today. The Pirates beat the Nationals 4 to 3 yesterday. The Pirates are finally on a roll winning their last four games. The team needs to stay on a roll to dig themselves out of the deep hole that they’re in if the team is to have any chance of making the playoffs this year.
I listen to 93.7 FM The Fan. It’s a local sports show. Fans call in and vent about the Pirates. Some of the fans know what they’re talking about and some don’t have a clue, according to the hosts of the show.
I get a kick out of the show. It’s like complaining about the weather. But I guess fans need to talk about the team because the show is on 24/7 and fans call in all night long to talk sports.
